What a fantastic day I enjoyed at the ICC Champions Trophy One Day International at Edgbaston on Saturday. The drive down was fine, with no traffic holdups, the rain held off on the day of the match, and England beat Australia!
Some of the group who attend these matches at Edgbaston know their cricket, so it was revealing about the current state of the Australian team that at one stage, when I asked who was captaining Australia, no-one knew. In fact, it was GJ Bailey.
One thing which was less than perfect was the lack of replays on the big screen after each ball. It is easy to miss something live, so replays can be very important. People seemed to think that this was an ICC thing.
